In collections every legal means is directed at collecting the debt but doing so in a professional and ethical manner. The firm is committed to results. The firm succeeds through careful compliance with the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act together with other collection laws and regulations, and using the latest technology, asset discovery methods and strategies formulated to get results. Pre-suit collections representation is available. The emphasis is on quickly resolving the case and achieving the maximum recovery for the client.
The firm is set-up to handle the collection of deficiencies. The firm has a large statewide presence and a successful record in the area of real estate foreclosure and automobile deficiencies. Our success in this area has helped our clients improve their bottom line.
Both wage and bank garnishments provide the creditor the means of quickly and effectively achieving recovery of the judgment debt. The firm successfully utilizes garnishments to make the client whole. Even if the garnishment does not result in the satisfaction of the debt, at the very least the judgment debtor will likely seek a settlement or otherwise resolve the debt.
Commercial litigation encompasses a broad range of civil litigation to include suits on instruments, foreclosures, landlord/ tenant evictions, title curative actions, defensive litigation, and all other business and consumer actions filed in Federal and State courts. The emphasis is on quickly prevailing in the dispute through litigation and any available non-litigation resolution to include demand prior to suit, aggressive negotiation, loss mitigation and when appropriate, mediation, or arbitration.

Whether your matter is in Chapter 7, 13, 11 or 12, rest assured the firm has the knowledge and experience to assist you in recovering what you are owed or your security. The firm recognizes that a bankruptcy filing can be very discouraging to the client but through aggressive representation recovery is often successful
The firm has always been a full service creditor's rights firm. This means the firm is dedicated to the recovery of property or money owed and all areas of representation to assure the creditor is made whole. In this area we also concern ourselves and represent creditors who have been sued or have claims against them by borrowers or debtors who respond aggressively to debt collection or recovery efforts.
Founded as the Law Offices of Daniel C. Consuegra, P.L., we have been offering representation exclusively in Florida since our founding in 1986. Our commitment to service and professionalism directs every decision we make and every interaction we have with our valued clients.
The firm saw great expansion during this time, as we were predominantly handling foreclosure cases. At one point, the firm counted 500+ employees as part of it's family. In 2015, the foreclosure practice was sold to Shapiro, Fishman & Gache, LLP and we went back to our roots practicing mainly collection cases.
In October of 2017, Amanda Duffy joined our team as a partner. She brought her 15+ years of industry knowledge and management skills, and has streamlined workflow, created scalability, provided analytics, and has maintained the gold standard in compliance and customer service.
When Amanda Duffy became a partner in October 2017, we formed a new entity, Consuegra & Duffy, P.L.L.C. and for continuity’s sake we continued to operate under our exiting firm name, the Law Offices of Daniel C. Consuegra, P.L. We all worked hard and under Amanda, the firm’s operations and performance reached that next level. We have always sought to be the very best, the firm under its new name is committed to carrying on a proud tradition. Please join us in celebrating our past, our present and our future and we hope you will stand with us and encourage us as we go forward under our name, Consuegra & Duffy, P.L.L.C.
